Grady is a very small town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 1,677 people and just one neighborhood, Grady is the 245th largest community in Alabama.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Grady isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Grady are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Grady is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Grady who work in office and administrative support (17.41%), sales jobs (12.62%) and management occupations (7.83%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.96% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Grady is worth considering.
One downside of living in Grady is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Grady, the average commute to work is 37.51 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
